I was herp atlassing in the eastern portion of the county and adjacent portions of Hastings County. Lots of bird activity including Great Crested Flycatcher, and single Gray Catbird, Bobolink and American Redstart, the latter which was singing constantly from woods near Marmora Station. Lots of turtles, mostly Midland Painted but a few Blanding’s, and frogs, including one ‘chorus’ (2 individuals) of Pickerel Frog in a grassy pond along the hydro right-of-way paralleling Bannockburn Rd., west of Bannockburn (Hwy 62).
